Ugh...the whole LinkedIn password thing makes me sick. The article is rather confusing, but it seems to say that Mr Young is trying to expand his program's vocabulary/word combinations via classic lit. As to his objective... :/ It's not foolproof, but I'd recommend that people make each of their passwords as long and confusing as possible--there should be no recognisable words in it.

Guess I'd better rethink having my password for everything be "sydneycarton". Darn.

I agree with Marian about the article being confusing. In trying to give enough information for the average person to understand what he was talking about, the author of the article only gave enough information to be confusing and not enough to actually explain the concept. I know some tiny amount about password conversions in databases, but I barely understood half of the article.
